Welcome to our TAC 3D Design and Coding Summer Camp!
Our combined summer technology program includes a combination of 3D Design and Coding.
The programming is designed by our directors at Lifetime Skills Academy, a company dedicated to creating future leaders of tomorrow.
Our combined full day tech program introduces students to essential skills in two
of the newest emerging technologies, skills that will be essential for their lifetimes.
Our dynamic camp program focuses on building skills through challenges
and games in our step-by-step system, with easy-to-follow lessons.
Each half-day, programming will switch between 3D Printing and Coding.
Students have a half-day snack break a 30-minute break for physical activity in both
AM and PM half-days.
In our 3D printing programming, students learn how to 3D Design online using
easy-to-use software, creating their own unique designs to print on
any 3D printer. Students learn how to create a variety of different designs
and objects with lessons.
Our coding program introduces children to coding through Scratch, an easy
to use online platform. They learn how to build basic video games and
animations with building blocks in fun dynamic lessons.
Ages 7-12. Computers provided. Co-Ed.
- Lunch and Snacks (Full Day), Snacks (Half Day)

TAC Sports is dedicated to following all procedures recommended by governments and health agencies on proper protocols. The following protocols are in place from recommendations from the American Camp Association and the Government of Ontario.
All TAC Camps are running according to the lowest risk:
Lowest Risk: Small groups of campers stay together all day, each day. Campers are encouraged to remain at least 6 feet apart. Outdoor activities are prioritized. All campers are from the local geographic area.
Drop-Off and Pick-up Procedures
- TAC Sports has developed procedures that support physical distancing and separate groups as best as possible (i.e., children of one room enter door A and children of another room enter door B, or staggered entrance times).
- As much as possible, parents should not go past the screening area.
Hand sanitizers will be available and if in an enclosed space and physical distance of 2 meters cannot be maintained, parents/guardians and staff/providers are encouraged to use face coverings.
- Signage /markings on the ground to direct families through the entry steps.
- Personal belongings (e.g., backpack, clothing, etc.) should be minimized. If brought, belongings will be labelled and kept in a specifically designated area.
Screening for Symptoms
- All individuals including children attending child care, staff and child care providers, parents/guardians, and visitors must be screened each day before entering the child care setting, including daily temperature checks.
- Home child care providers and residents must also be screened each day before receiving children into care.
- Parents and guardians should be reminded of this requirement when children are first registered for the program and through visible signage at the entrances and drop-off areas.
- If children are screened at the child care setting, screeners should take appropriate precautions when screening and escorting children to the program, including maintaining a distance of at least 2 meters (6 feet) from those being screened, or being separated by a physical barrier (such as a plexiglass barrier), and wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) (i.e., surgical/procedure mask and eye protection (goggles or face shield)).
- Alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol content should be placed at all screening stations. Dispensers should not be in locations that can be accessed by young children.
- Records are to be kept on the premises.
Ongoing Screening Procedure
TAC Sports will screen individuals upon coming into a camp on an ongoing basis.
- Individuals will be asked if they have any COVID-19 symptoms
- The temperature of the individual will be taken according to camp processes using an appropriate forehead thermometer.
- If campers or staff are suspected to have COVID-19 based on this assessment, this individual will have to go home immediately and will not be able to enter camp.
- Individuals who are demonstrating symptoms of COVID-19 will be encouraged to have a COVID-19 test before being allowed to return to camp.
Protocols When a Child or Staff Demonstrates Symptoms of Illness or Becomes Sick
- Staff/home child care providers, parents and guardians, and children must not attend the program if they are sick, even if symptoms resemble a mild cold.
- Symptoms to look for include but are not limited to: fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny nose, nasal congestion, headache, and a general feeling of being unwell.
- Children, in particular, should be monitored for atypical symptoms and signs of COVID-19. For more information, please see the symptoms outlined in the ‘COVID-19 Reference Document for Symptoms’ on the Ministry of Health’s COVID-19 website.
- If a child or child care staff/provider becomes sick while in the program, they should be isolated and family members contacted for pick-up.
- The sick person will be provided with tissues and reminded of hand hygiene, respiratory etiquette, and proper disposal of tissues.
- If the sick person is a child, a staff will remain with the child until a parent/guardian arrives. The staff will wear a surgical/procedure mask and eye protection at all times and not interact with others. The staff will also avoid contact with the child’s respiratory secretions.
- All items used by the sick person will be cleaned and disinfected. All items that cannot be cleaned (paper, books, cardboard puzzles) will be removed and stored in a sealed container for a minimum of 7 days.
- The sick person will be asked to be tested for COVID-19 at one of the testing centers available. The sick person can only come back to camp once they have demonstrated a COVID-19 negative test score.
- If the person is in a cohort, the cohort will be notified. Any instructors that are in the cohort will be notified and monitored for symptoms.
- If the sick person is COVID-19 positive, all members of the cohort or their group or activity will be notified and recommended to have the COVID-19.
Emergency CPR will remain as per the proper training procedures with modifications in place.
The recommendations below are based on expert opinion. They will reduce the risk of the public responder getting the virus from the person when providing CPR and using an AED during cardiac arrest. They are modifications of usual Hands-Only CPR to be used only during the COVID-19 pandemic. They apply to both adults and children.
- Prevent contamination: lay a cloth, towel, or clothing over the person’s mouth and nose to prevent any potential spread of the virus through contaminated air or saliva.
- Provide Hands-Only CPR
- An automated external defibrillator (AED) if available. AEDs are safe and simple to use. Turn it on and follow the voice prompts.
- All play will be in small groups by activity in order to facilitate physical distancing. Where the outdoor play area is large enough to accommodate multiple groups, licensees may divide the space with physical markers to ensure cohorts remain separated by at least 2 metres.
- Food services will be provided by Rose Reisman catering
- All lunches and snacks are individually packaged and wrapped
- Foods are free from all common allergies and food restrictions and allergy free options are available. Food service is free from peanuts and tree nuts.
Face Mask Approach
- Face masks, while not technically PPE, should be worn by:
- Counsellors whenever interacting with others closer than six feet for extended periods, i.e., greater than 15 minutes, as well as other times to the extent possible.
- The kitchen staff should always wear face masks. Refer to the Food Services section.
- Custodial staff should always wear face masks when cleaning and disinfecting. Refer to the Cleaning and Disinfection section.
- Staff should wear cloth masks when interacting with outside vendors or outside community members when physical distancing can’t be maintained.
- Disposable gloves should be worn by:
- Counsellors when anticipating contact with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 cases or when handling belongings known to have been in contact with confirmed or suspected cases.
- Best Practice: Counselors should wear gloves when handling any incoming belongings or equipment prior to disinfection.
- 5 Star Development System
- TAC Sports cares about each single child that comes into any program. We are a full-scale development academy that helps players in skill development, and most importantly, self-development.As part of this mission to assist each child to reach their maximum skill, confidence and self-image potential, we created The 5-Star Development System (C) to assist students to become more motivated, more confident, and more knowledgeable about their own development.
The 5 Star Development System includes 50 distinct skills over 5 different levels per sport. Each different level specifies criteria and achievements for students to obtain for each sport.
